The city of Aurora is revising its 2016 Hazard Mitigation Plan to lessen the long-term risk to people and property from natural hazards. Mitigation measures reduce personal loss, save lives and reduce the cost of responding to and recovering from disasters. The plan guides decision makers in committing city resources and integrates with existing building and zoning regulations, long-range planning efforts and environmental stewardship.

The updated plan is also required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency for local jurisdictions to be eligible for disaster mitigation funding. The plan includes rating the risks associated with hazards in the city of Aurora, and how the city plans to address or lessen potential impacts of identified hazards.

The city received public feedback on the final draft in August and is currently preparing to submit a final plan for approval by FEMA. View the plan at https://virtual.woodplc.com/VirtualSpace/147208.
